Successful Implantation of a Coronary Stent Graft in a Peripheral Vessel

Figure 2

Perforation of a small side branch of the popliteal artery presumably by the 0.035′′ Terumo guide wire (white arrow in (a)). A 0.014′′ wire was subsequently inserted into this side branch (b), and bleeding was stopped after placement of a coronary Direct-Stent stent graft (c and d). Using colour doppler ultrasound the stent graft (white brackets) could be visualized one day after implantation, exhibiting normal blood flow (e and f).
